PHIL MOFFA

Let's play a game. Put on a decent pair of headphones and listen to "Premonition," a techno track from New York artist Phil Moffa's recent EP for Plan B Recordings. Notice how each element feels like it's breathing freely in it's own space? Now observe how the kick and the bassline sound perfectly in concert, as though they're one and the same thing. You might also feel like the track is hitting hard without shouting to be heard. Essentially what you're hearing is years of experience. For the past 15 years, Moffa has been slowly earning his stripes, buried away in studios, absorbing New York's dance floors, playing in hardware-based improv groups and, on one occasion, producing a dub and reggae artist. In 2010 he opened Butcha Sound studio on the site of a famous Manhattan recording space, and took on engineering work for club producers while working on his own music. Through his friend Levon Vincent, Moffa met Anthony Parasole, and the pair ended up collaborating on Atlantic Avenue, the second release on Parasole's label, The Corner. Moffa went on to collaborate with DJ Spider, Paul Raffaele, and most recently, Seth Troxler, and he's put out a couple of solo EPs as well. Moffa usually likes to keep his track simple (they hit harder this way) so he can focus on teasing out the warped synth lines and droning atmospherics he's so fond of.
